The American Association of State Highway and Transportation officials, through the Natural Cooperatives Research Program, authorized the Transportation Research Board to undertake a continuing study, NCHRP 20-5 "Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems" to search out and Synthesize useful knowledge from all possible sources and to prepare documented reports on current practices in the subject areas of concern. The report series "Synthesis of Highway Practice" assembles the various forms of information into single concise documents pertaining to highway problems or sets of closely related problems. Information from numerous sources including State highway and transportation departments are analyzed and a panel of experts guides researchers in organizing and evaluating the data and reviewing the report. The Syntheses that have been published are tabulated. The topics on which work is currently under way are also tabulated. This present publication also explains the process for submision and selection of topics and the conduct of the studies. An index to published syntheses topics now under study is included.
